Your gift will help to cover expenses for our annual team training trip. This trip enhances our student-athlete’s experience, and increases our training during one of the most physically and mentally challenging times of our season. It assists in preparing our student-athletes for success in upcoming meets and the league championships.
The Golden Grizzlies Athletic Fund (GGAF) is the official fundraising arm for Oakland University Athletics. It is the direct way to impact our student-athletes and their first-class experience as Golden Grizzlies. The growth of the GGAF is critical to the future of Oakland University Athletics and our Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving programs. Your contributions provide invaluable support to Oakland University Athletics’ 18 Division I varsity sports programs and over 320 student-athletes, including Women’s Swimming & Diving.
Oakland University Athletics is committed to providing a first-class experience for our student-athletes during their time as Golden Grizzlies, helping develop them into champions in the classroom, in competition, and in life. Throughout 2015-16, our student-athletes captured eight Horizon League team championship titles – including our Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving programs – en route to becoming back-to-back champions of the McCafferty Trophy, which is presented to the league’s all-sports champion. Academically, 250 student-athletes were tabbed for Horizon League Honor Roll, continuing to lead the league every semester since joining. Our student-athletes are active in the community as well, as they continue to contribute countless hours towards community service. Your support allows us to continue building upon these successes.
